Da oggi voglio provare a scrivere anche in inglese, chi conosce seriamente questa lingua non si offenda, è un modo per mettermi alla prova, un tentativo di rispolverare il mio inglese scolastico e vedere quello che ne verrà fuori....
E fortunata chi sabato si è conosciuta per "davvero davvero".
Surfing here and there, I got to know that last Saturday, in Milan, there has been the first gathering of all bloggers around Italy. I swear, had I known it earlier or had I lived nearer, I would have taken part as well, curious as such an event requires, eager to finally meet in person who for now I only know 'in reading'. Yes, because there is no day (or couple of days if long), that I don't snoop around and read the lines of those blogs I follow, and even of those I don't follow, to be honest, that I found along the way and I fell in love with, and that for now are there, saved in my bookmarks, and that one day, I promise, I will add among my favorites for everyone to see. If I think that everything started by chance, on a boring October day... I had been thinking about making a blog for a while already, but the negative thoughts were stronger than me 'I'm just going to leave it there, without caring, I'm not going to have the time', but here I am, and the time I take indeed, it became a daily appointment, between one thing to do and another, or in the quietness of my evenings, it's a time of the day which is all and only mine. At first, I wouldn't tell anyone, but then, one step at a time, I told my family and my friends, and I happen to have maybe persuaded one to make a blog herself. Why? Because it feels good, it feels good to write, to write down my thoughts and to read others', to take pictures, stopping the passing of time in other people's snap of a camera, because there are no collateral effects, but only the conscious, small and important fortune to commit yourself to something you love doing.
From today, I want to try and write in English too, hoping that those who actually know the language don't take it too badly, it's just a way to challenge myself, trying to remember that English I learned at school and see what comes out of it.
Oh, and so lucky all of you, who on Saturday got to finally know each other, for real real.
